Ellie

More bath time fun, courtesy of the rubber ducky.

I think it's obligatory for every parent to do this to their child.

That ducky must taste good!

And a little video with Ernie from Sesame Street helping out. I apologize in advance for those who can't see it for whatever reason. It was too much work and web space to do it in every imaginable format....

Since Ellie's Uncle Roger keeps asking why the only picture of Cousin Colin on the web site is of his naked behind, here's some pictures from his first birthday party!

Colin's looking pretty happy. Must be all the presents.

He wasn't really sure what to do with the cake. We were hoping for more of a mess, but this was about as messy as it got.

Great shot of the "Birthday Boy" shirt we got for him. There's a big "1" on the front.

Obligatory Ellie picture. Ellie got in on the action and put up with us putting the party hat on her.... for a little while anyway.

It's a tradition for Lisa's brother and her aunt to go to the Detroit Tigers Opening Day game. This year, Ellie and Lisa went along with them, maybe establishing a new tradition.

Lisa and Ellie and a nice view of Comerica Park.

Ellie loved the foam finger, unfortunately, she kept trying to hide behind it.

I know, it's not a Yankee game, but with fans that look this good, ya gotta say "Go Tigers!"

Finally got around to putting together the pictures from Ellie's first vacation to the Florida Keys and Miami. Lots of fun stuff, including pictures from the beach and the zoo.

In spite of less-than-perfect weather, the cherry blossoms have started blooming around the Tidal Basin in Washington. Here's Ellie doing her best impression of a cherry blossom.

Before Spring begins (for those of us up North who still experience seasons), one last gasp of Winter.
